The Quahog Day tradition has become a rite of passage into summer for Cape Cod residents. Kicking off the summer season, Doug—as the region's official Quahog—tells us how many days of beach weather we have to look forward to during the season. During his "Prognostication Ceremony," Doug secretly whispers his prediction into the ear of his human sidekick, Captain Johnny Quahog, aka The Secretary General of Quahog Republic.

Doug has a shell of a reputation on Cape Cod. During the event, he is escorted by a Quahog Security Detail, a team of black-suited men and women armed with clamming rakes. Read the stories of some of Doug's loyal Quahog Security Members.

Come witness history in the making! Join us on the First Day of Summer in 2017 when Doug is back again with his highly anticipated prediction! And be on Doug Watch all year long: Like Doug on Facebook, follow him on Twitter, find him on Instagram and watch his escapades on Vine.
